Attorney General Swanson will provide information on the numerous scams targeted at senior citizens.

According to her website, scams come in all types and sizes, range greatly in complexity and may originate from someone close to you or a stranger halfway around the world. Some of the common scams include computer scams, trust scams, investment scams, magazine scams, lottery scams and identity theft scams.

Scammers are constantly reinventing new ways to perpetrate old ploys. Whether contacted by phone, mail, email, text, or in-person, Attorney General Swanson will provide tips on how to spot a scam and what tell-tale red flags to look for. There will be time for questions.

Swanson was elected Attorney General of the State of Minnesota in 2006, and re-elected in 2010 and 2014. She is Minnesota's 29th Attorney General and its first female Attorney General. Swanson has been an advocate for Minnesota citizens in areas like consumer protection, predatory lending, healthcare, utility rate hikes, telecommunications, public safety and protecting senior citizens from financial fraud.
